Advice to Bidders
Registration is required of all bidders. Any bid executed constitutes acceptance of the Conditions of Sale.. BUYER’S PREMIUM AND PURCHASE PRICE. As stated in the Conditions of Sale, a buyer’s premium of eighteen percent (18%) will be added to the hammer price of each lot sold. The buyer’s final purchase price per lot is the total of the lot hammer price, the lot buyer’s premium, and any applicable taxes. APPLICABLE SALES TAX. As stated in the Conditions of Sale, unless exempt by law, all sales are subject to Virginia Sales Tax, now levied at a rate of six percent [6%]. International bidders are responsible for any and all country-specific taxes. BIDDING. Registration is required of all bidders. All lots are subject to a default reserve price of fifty percent [50%] or half the low estimate. This reserve applies to all lots and all bidders, whether bidders are present, bidding absentee, bidding by telephone, or bidding via Internet. Absentee bidding is available to those who cannot attend the sale in person. Telephone bidding is available on a limited, first-come, first-served basis. Internet bidding is available via eBay and the Live Auctioneers service. QW assumes no liability for errors and omissions in the execution of absentee, telephone, or Internet bids. Absentee bidders may leave bids to be executed fairly and confidentially by the auctioneer on their behalf. Absentee bids may be registered in person, by telephone, by e-mail, or by fax prior to sale. Absentee bidders are encouraged to use the Absentee Bid Form included with this catalog. All absentee bids must be submitted by 3:00 P.M. the day before the sale. All absentee bidders must register with a credit card number and will be charged a preliminary hold of $100.00 upon registering.” Telephone bidders must make confirmed reservations with QW within 24 hours of sale. Telephone lines are limited and this service is extended as a courtesy to serious bidders only. Bidders requesting telephone service may be asked to leave absentee bids in lieu of telephone bidding. All telephone bidders must register with a credit card number and will be charged a preliminary hold of $250.00 upon registering. As previously stated, all lots are subject to a default reserve price of fifty percent [50%] or half the low estimate. Consequently, QW will only extend the courtesy of telephone bidding to those willing to execute a minimum bid of the default reserve amount on any lot bid by telephone. As additional advice to those considering telephone bidding, we must advise that landlines are often preferable to cell phones for clarity and consistency in communication with our staff. No additional information, such as condition reports, additional descriptions, or further explanations regarding conditions of sale will be made available during telephone bidding. Lastly, our sales move rapidly and may include numerous floor bidders, absentee bidders, other telephone bidders, and Internet bidders. Consequently, it behooves the telephone bidder to focus their attentions exclusively on the process of sale and the lot under consideration. Individuals attempting to execute telephone bids while driving, during dinner, or in other circumstances ill-suited to orderly conduct of sale, may be refused accommodation for telephone bidding. Internet bidders may bid via eBay and the Live Auctioneersservice. Internet bidders must register through eBay and the Live Auctioneers service and are further bound by the terms and conditions of those services. Consequently, it behooves Internet bidders to avail themselves of any and all additional terms and conditions that apply to these proxy services. INJURY AND DAMAGE: Bidders acknowledge responsibility for any personal injury or property damage they or their agent may cause, and further agree to hold QW harmless from any injury to themselves or their agents and any property damage incurred on QW premises. REMOVAL. All purchases must be removed from QW premises within five  calendar days of sale unless additional arrangements are made. Purchases paid for but not removed within the aforementioned time will incur storage fees. Storage fees are based on the property to be removed and are assessed at the sole and final discretion of QW. Purchases not removed within 30 days become property of QW. SHIPPING. As stated in the Conditions of Sale, title to any lot sold passes to the purchaser with the fall of the hammer. The purchaser assumes immediate risk and responsibility for the property. Therefore, purchasers assume full responsibility for the packaging, shipping, and insurance of their property. QW makes reasonable efforts to assist purchasers who cannot pick up their property in person in effecting delivery of their purchases through third-party providers.

QW has made every effort to accurately describe and catalog all property to be sold. Major defects, where evident, have been noted, along with comments regarding overall condition. However, it behooves the serious bidder to examine the property personally during the established exhibition times offered prior to sale. QW assumes no risk, liability, or responsibility for the accuracy of description, identification, weight, count, or measurement, or the verification of authenticity, authorship, or previous ownership, of any property listed in its catalogs, advertisements, lists of sale, or announcements. The descriptions of all property appearing in this catalog and any associated advertising, lists of sale, or announcements, is believed to be accurate.

For absentee bidders, return must be made within two weeks (14 calendar days) of receipt of property, providing written notice detailing the specific reason for return is given first within five (5) days of receipt of property, and providing that the property is in the same condition as when sold. All returns must be completed within 30 days of sale date. No property bearing additional descriptive limitations [i.e. sold with all faults, not subject to return] will be eligible for this remedy. The sale of property described as such is final and no remedy will be extended after the hammer falls. Furthermore, there is no remedy for bidder remorse. AUCTION BY LOT. All bids executed in this sale are by lot as numbered in this catalog. QW reserves the right to withdraw prior to sale any lot listed in this catalog, in whole or in part, and may do so at any time up to the moment of sale and at its sole and final discretion.
